The Argentine Lisandro López converted an elegant goal in the 69th minute to give Xolos de Tijuana a 1-0 victory over Pumas UNAM on Saturday , in the fourth round of the Mexican Clausura.
López put an end to numerous failures by the Xolos , including a penalty missed 2 times by the Argentine Facundo Ferreyra. Despite being a defender, the Argentine accepted a ball in the area and with a volley from his right leg decided the match.
The first time was attractive; Xolos dominated , but both teams had opportunities to open the scoring. On the last play of the opening 45 minutes, goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera saved a Ferreyra penalty ; the goalkeeper was ahead and in the repetition of the attacker he threw the ball out.
In minute 56 Ferreyra confirmed his terrible night and with everything in his favor he failed again, but Tijuana improved with the entry of Colombian Mauro Manotas and Chilean Joaquín Montecinos and in minute 65 he signed his first win of the year.
With a win, a draw and 2 losses, the Xolos rose to twelfth place, while Pumas appears fifth with 2 wins and a couple of setbacks.
